Vintage African Black Mudcloth | STARS 22x22
We love the way these turned out! Slightly oversized at 22", toss these on the sheep skin rug and sit around the coffee table.
Bogalanfini, aka mudcloth, is handwoven and expertly dyed in Mali, a centuries old practice with cultural significance.
The design has become a must have here in the states, and thus an important export for West Africa. It is becoming more and more prevalent in America's fashion and home decor scene.

Mudcloth is woven and expertly dyed with fermented mud and/or organic indigo as a centuries old practice with significance in cultural identity. Whether tied and dyed in the ancient indigo vats of Nigeria, or hand painted with fermented mud in Mali - each piece is created by hand and carries a story unto itself.
These rich colors, tribal patterns and geometric motifs have become a must have here in the states, and an important export for West Africa.
Mudcloth has only become more and more desirable in America's fashion and home decor scene as we seek out one of a kind, handmade goods with a story.
Please keep in mind that variations may occur and that the eccentricities of the piece, in its hand-dyed quality are its most endearing features. We are careful to hand inspect all of the pillow covers after they have been dyed for your home.
Our pillows are produced in North Carolina and Los Angeles with care, and an eye for distinct quality and craftsmanship.
